Still nice hits, though. You're probably one of the few people who can say they're up, lifetime, against reels.

I knew we had a good chance of getting the machine when the Mad Russian converted the last of his player card points ($40) and dropped his bet down to $3/spin. He stood up, faced us and we ask if he's done. He does a two handed forward wave indicating he's had enough of a beating and walks away. I'd guess that 8 hours of losing on a slot machine will do that to you. When I left after poker at 3 AM he was on this machine. When my buddy arrived at 9 AM he was on the machine. It was now almost noon.

Here's what we get to play -

Since we have VIP cards we can lock up a machine for 2-3 hours via slot attendant. I suggest we go eat in the VIP lounge since we could be here many hours if it takes us to the top.

1:20 PM. Back from eating and ready to play. The first $1000 lasts 22 minutes. We bet $5/spin but you can double press any bet button to stop the reel animation. Since we don't want to be there 20 hours we always stop our spins.

1:42 PM Another $1000. This grand goes even quicker at 17 minutes.

1:59 PM we put in another $1000. This time the money is actually lasting. We're hitting bonuses and good line hits.

2:20 PM. The machine does an animation indicating we've won either the Minor or the Major. You don't know for about 7 seconds until the animation stops so the whole time we cheer, "Major Major!".

This time our chants influenced the outcome! Who knew you could do that?

We get our divided W2's by 3 PM, split the remaining credits in the machine and celebrate with some comped sushi later on that evening.

7 seconds? Always seems more like an eternity. Retriggering minor jackpots aren't that bad but they can often retrigger bad language.

On a 9-10k I would think it would need to be closer to 9950 before it is a play. Of course i don't know whay the meter move is.

I'd rather not get into specifics because even though the info is out there on these forums already, people are way way way off with their numbers.

For example $9950 is worth over $5K....

Lets see who can guess what the meter move is. assuming his timeline is accurate the only piece missing is how many spins per hour they got out. I'm not sure if they sweat bonus rounds or flash through them. IIRC them machines are super fast.

I'll try to time the animation next time we get on one. I actually think the minor animation is maybe 1-2 seconds faster than the major but that's simply speculation right now.

I'm always happy when a minor hits, especially when it's under $400. That's just more money in our pocket and more of the 1.07% the minor (on these particular $1 machines) takes out of coin-in that we get to actualize.
